Latest Updates.. Blog post.. February 03, 2014.. Going Undercover in Kisumu.. A ceiling fan swirled lazily above our heads, doing little to dissipate the intense heat of an afternoon in Western Kenya during the region’s dry season.. Ten pairs of eyes watched me expectantly as I waited impatiently for my presentation to load and project onto the concrete block wall.. It was the first day of a week-long training that would precede nearly three months of data collection at health care facilities in Kisumu, Kenya.. This was my first experience serving as the principal investigator for a study, and I was a bundle of anticipatory nerves.. My goal was to charge my data collection team with a sense of urgency and an understanding of the life-saving benefits of family planning for women and their children.. The day stretched long as we unpacked the relationship between contraceptive prevalence and maternal, infant, and child health.. At the end of the day, I felt encouraged when one member of my team stayed behind to share, “I learned so much today.. You’ve given me a.. language.. to talk about family planning with women and their partners.. ”.. A healthcare provider with a client in Kenya.. © 2009 David Mita Aluku,.. Courtesy of Photoshare.. Many years ago, I worked at my local Planned Parenthood for a program designed to prevent teen pregnancy.. Drawing on these early experiences in service delivery, I often wonder if a woman’s decision to use contraception is influenced by her interaction with her health care provider.. In many developing countries, we try to understand the relationship between the quality of family planning services and actual contraceptive use by collecting data at health facilities, usually in the form of interviews with family planning providers and their clients.. Curious about the accuracy of this self-reported data, I traveled to Kenya in 2012 to implement an unusual study.. I worked with a team of.. undercover.. data collectors—local women hired to pose at facilities as new family planning clients and then report back to research staff about their experiences.. Our study findings surprised me.. Sometimes my data collectors came back to me with glowing reports of service providers truly devoted to the well-being of their clients.. Other times, however, members of my team reported less positive experiences, such as waiting all day at a facility without ever receiving services or witnessing a family planning provider shouting at clients as the clients waited long hours to be served.. I was also surprised when a number of my data collectors reported being charged for services that are reportedly provided for free.. This often happened behind closed doors and without receipts..

Jacaranda Health.. in Kenya, which is "developing a replicable model to provide affordable, high-quality maternal health services to low-income women worldwide.. Jacaranda Health is a stellar example of how the global community is working towards meeting the unmet need for family planning.. Here, they share five lessons on integrating postpartum family planning services in their maternity services.. What lessons have you learned about integrating family planning into health services? Tell us in the comments.. Photo © Jacaranda Health.. Source:.. Impatient Optimists.. Jacaranda Health is working to change the way that maternity care is provided in Africa.. We are developing a replicable model to provide affordable, high-quality maternal health services to low-income women worldwide.. Our goal is to become a global laboratory for some of the most exciting innovations in maternal and child health service delivery.. Family planning is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce maternal mortality, and at Jacaranda we are committed to integrating high quality family planning services to the spectrum of our maternity services.. We hope to contribute to the community by sharing what we are learning about providing postpartum family planning services in resource-constrained settings.. 1.. Integrate family planning into maternity services.. Pregnant women have so much to think about during pregnancy – where to deliver, how to save for the costs, the baby clothes – that preventing the next child is often the last thing on their mind.. But studies from around the world have shown that nearly 80 percent of women do not want a pregnancy in the two years following a delivery.. Half of these women would like to start contraception within six weeks after delivery.. In Kenya, 90 percent of women in the three months postpartum and 68 percent of women at one year postpartum still have an unmet need for family planning.. Most health care facilities design maternity care and family planning as separate services; we believe the two should be married.. Integration of family planning into antenatal, postpartum, and child wellness services is proven to help women meet their contraceptive desires.. At Jacaranda, we’ve integrated family planning cues into documentation so that providers do not have to struggle with multiple  ...   health,.. it would be possible to not only avoid unnecessary deaths, but also have healthier, more productive individuals, communities and countries.. " At the recent.. International Conference on Family Planning.. , there was much talk about the unmet need for family planning among young people.. Ministers of Health from across Africa visited clinics around Addis Ababa and held an all-day meeting titled.. The Youth Dividend: Return on Investment in Family Planning.. The solutions range from the grand policy solution to nuancing a media message.. Free primary education is a preventive factor for early pregnancy.. , and has been implemented in Kenya and other countries.. On a smaller scale, behavior change communications materials might benefit from using language other than 'family planning' when talking with young people who have an unmet need for contraception, but who are not thinking in terms of planning their families.. What are the best ways to meet the unmet need for family planning among young people? Tell us in the comments.. A mother and her newborn at a maternity ward in Dili, Timor Leste.. Small investments in women's and children's health will yield a large return, according to the Global Investment Framework for Women's and Children's Health.. Photo by: Ron Haviv / UNFPA.. A recent study published in The Lancet found that an increase of only $5 per capita per year in 74 of the poorest countries in the world can result in a nine-fold social and economic return.. Global Investment Framework for Women’s and Children’s Health.. — supported by the.. Population Fund.. , the.. World Health Organization.. and other partners — shows that small investments in women’s and children’s health will yield a large return.. By making the additional investments needed for life-saving interventions, it would be possible to not only avoid unnecessary deaths, but also have healthier, more productive individuals, communities and countries.. The social and economic benefits would include preventing the needless deaths of 5 million women, 147 million children, and 32 million stillbirths by 2035.. Nearly all of the averted maternal deaths would be in low- or lower-middle-income countries, two-thirds of them in sub-Saharan Africa.. The benefits would also include greater GDP growth through increased employment, productivity and personal income.. From UNFPA’s perspective, the framework touches a key development area: sexual and reproductive health.. A key finding of the analysis reconfirms what UNFPA has always said — that reducing the unmet need for family planning is a primary driver of the benefits, accounting for half of all the deaths prevented in the accelerated investment scenario.. The push by the international community to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health, including maternal health, is rightly putting family planning and choices at the heart of our combined efforts.. And, to achieve and sustain inclusive development, we must also focus on young people, in particular young women and girls.. Youth.. Unmet Needs.. UNFPA.. January 13, 2014.. Research Meets Real Life and Underscores the Importance of Access.. As a researcher, it has been rare for me to interact directly with the women and men whose lives are intended to be impacted by our work.. Typically, my interactions go no further than the data collectors I train.. However, when my research was based in Latin America and the Caribbean, I could unobtrusively participate in pilot testing of data collection instruments.. Not so in sub Saharan Africa (SSA) where I do not resemble the locals, and as a “muzungu” (foreigner) could be disruptive to the data collection process.. Nevertheless, it was in Zambia that I experienced the closest, and some of my more memorable, interactions with health care providers and family planning clients.. Dawn Chin Quee ties the legs of a chicken in Zambia.. My experiences in Zambia were gained through a pilot study conducted in Mumbwa and Luangwa districts.. The study in Zambia is described in detail in a.. recently published.. online article.. that reports on.. the safety, feasibility, acceptability, and cost-effectiveness of community health worker (CHW) provision of Depo Provera as well as its impact on family planning uptake.. Our study found very high uptake of injectables when the method was added to the contraceptive method mix provided by CHWs: during the study period, the CHWs provided protection against pregnancy for one year (couple-year of protection) to 2,206 Depo Provera clients compared with 51 condom clients and 391 pill clients.. Of the 1,739 clients new to family planning, 85% chose Depo, and continuation rates were high.. Collaboration with our partner, ChildFund Zambia, as well as with the Ministry of Health and many other stakeholders were as rewarding as they were integral to the success of the pilot and scale up.. Family Planning.. January 07, 2014.. Resolution for 2014: Demystifying Knowledge Management.. The contributions of family planning stakeholders range impressively.. We conduct research and publish our finding.. We design, fund, and roll out interventions.. We write and implement policies and guidelines.. We create training curricula and job aids.. These varied and hard-won successes have the potential to feed into K4Health’s ultimate goal of continued, more, and/or better family planning access for billions of people worldwide.. A woman in Medinipore, India, stands in her marigold field while speaking to a customer on a mobile phone.. © 2012 Nimai Chandra Ghosh,.. But without a concerted effort to knit those pieces together into a coherent whole, we leave too much up to chance.. That’s where knowledge management comes in.. Knowledge managers ensure there are dynamic links between the complementary worlds of specialists—including program managers, health care providers, policymakers, medical experts, donors, and more.. Without those links, critical information—and the knowledge of how to apply it effectively—withers on the vine, never reaching fruition and benefitting the family planning client.. How do we take something as abstract as knowledge management and break it into bite-sized pieces so it can help family planning stakeholders, especially K4Health’s primary audiences of health program managers and health care providers?.. These five ideas are a start—and I’d love to hear your feedback.. What resonates, and what falls flat for you? What are we missing?
